Topshop Butterfly Print Fabric Holdall Bag OR Knockoff Gucci Bag

Topshop Butterfly Print Fabric Holdall Bag
I went to the Startford Wesfield a few days ago and of course I had to make a stop at Topshop. While shopping this hang bag caught my eye, not that i liked the handbag i just taught it looks like a knock off Gucci handbag that you see in the market. Topshop is a well established business/brand and for their buyer  to think its ok to buy a bag that look so much like a knockoff designer hand bag I think its crazy.
The prints on the bag clearly looks like 2 G's joint together and in no way looks like a butterfly to me, every single detail on the bag just looks like a knockoff Gucci hand, from the prints to the colour. 

What do you think?

Stylish Chic: Kelly Rowland

I’ve always loved Kelly Rowland but I was never a fan of her style, but I must say she stepped her style game up recently. She’s definitely sexed it up; her style is sexier, raunchy and saucy. Hmm maybe she hired a new stylish to sex up her image??

What do you think of Kelly's new style?

Name or Quality: The Pros and Cons of Buying Luxury Handbags

Read an interesting article last night on Vibe Vixen which I would like to share with you dolls,  Basically the article is about the pros and cons of buying  luxury designer handbags.

"There is a industry-wide consensus that buying fakes is unacceptable. Back in my intern days, when I was trying to fit in with the luxury-buying crowd, I, admittedly, purchased a knockoff. Naturally, by not having a salary or my mother’s cash to back it up, I went for a bright green Goyard that I was sure looked just like the real thing after meticulous comparison. I even had people in the industry compliment me on it which means two things: They had no idea that it wasn’t the real thing, or it was a Mean Girls compliment where they immediately talked about me behind my back. Nevertheless, it was just a buffer until the days I could really afford it.
On the other hand, I love brands that aren’t luxury like Deux Lux and handbags from ASOS. Both brands have quality pieces that are on trend and are extremely durable (without maxing out your credit card). I can pair them with a Stella McCartney blouse and Proenza Schouler sandals, garnering the same amount of compliments.  Luxury isn’t the be-all and end-all, especially for women who know that mixing high and low is the key to great style.
In case you have been asking yourself the age-old question about name or quality, here are some pros and cons to buying luxury handbags."

1. Owning a piece from a coveted brand with a rich history: As an avid fan of vintage Chanel, I know the value of the brand’s handbags. Designer names are so much more than just the piece itself. You are literally owning a piece of fashion history, as long as you manage to steer clear of pieces that are on trend and do not have lasting value.
2. Designer handbags are equated with status: Let’s face it: Rocking an expensive handbag gives people the impression that you have money. Perhaps not if you rock it with sweats and a sloppy ponytail. But when worn correctly, you are on par with celebrities and “It” girls worldwide, if only for a moment. Luxury handbags give us something to aspire to, even if we do have to save up  to reach our goal.
3. Supporting the craftsmanship of your favorite designers: Fashion is a business. Although there are a number of designers who don’t need our help, there are many who do. Without our support, many brands would fold and succumb to the recession. Buying luxury handbags is also a sign that you respect craftsmanship and quality.

1. Being a trendsetter doesn’t mean spending loads of cash: “When it comes to handbags, there are so many amazing designers priced to fit every budget. Stella, Chanel and Gucci aren’t the only designers making ‘must-have’ bags. I can buy a $50 handbag from a small boutique that screams ‘unique’ or ‘trend-setter’.” – Meeka Claxton
2. Durability doesn’t only belong to high-end designers: Some of the most inexpensive handbags I own are still going strong, while my most expensive started to show wear after a few months. Look at Coach’s signature handbags: They are some of the most durable in the industry and carry with them a lifetime guarantee.
3. Even those who can buy real, go fake: Tracee Ellis Ross is one of fashion’s style mavens, but even she buys fake handbags. She customized a fake Louis Vuitton tote with graffiti spelling out “Tee Love” and turned something faux into a really cute piece. She also proudly admitted in Essence‘s September 2011 issue that she totes a fake Birkin. Brazen buyer!
Are you a designer brand woman or do you go for what you like, not caring about the price tag?

Your Fashion Dilemmas Solved!

Anonymous Asked:
hi la belle femme, im looking for these platform versace shoes. Do you know where i can buy the shoes from spring 2010, fall2011 and spring 2011?? thanks

Unfortunately I can find the Versace multi coloured platform pumps, however I found the exactly same shoes in black, which you can get here. You can also try high end department stores such as Harrods, Selfridges or Saks Fifth Avenue.
Hope this helps :-)
